Got my Remora today.....

First impression was how simple it is. I was expecting something more complex, but it is a very simple design and I like that. Its is a very sleek shape, not ungangly like the seaclone and a nice dark gray.

Setting up was a breeze. Since my tank is only a 37g, I did not opt for the prefilter box and only got the maxijet 1200 pump, but all you do is attach the pump, plug is in and voila, skimmer extrodinair.

Instruction say it will take at least a couple of days to break in, and I did a PWC while I was setting it up, so I will have to update as to the performance. However, when i dumped my seaclone, it only had about 1/4 cup os skimmate, and that is 5 days worth of skimming.

I was going to post pics, but my camera decided to die....

I agree with most people here that a Remora is probably too small for a 110g tank, but I will still update in a few days.

The remora is a hanging one, and I would rather not have one like that.

Ok, I have narrowed it down to two - opinios please
